Subject: Update on Port Authority Service


UPDATED: 12:25 PM, Sunday, Feb. 7

Port Authority has restored limited bus service on multiple routes across Allegheny County.

The T remains shut down.
They are operating bus shuttles along the light rail routes. See details on the shuttle service below.

Service has been restored to the Mon Incline.

Some bus routes have not yet been restored as road conditions remain difficult in many areas. Below is a list of routes where we are offering basic levels of service, but not on a typical schedule.

Riders may have to "flag" bus drivers today as many stops and stations are not fully accessible due to snow.

Bus routes now offering limited service:
If there's no detail listed next to the route, that means it's following normal routing - but still will not be following scheduled trip times today.
